CO

I was unable to reduce the numbers (subscript). The number (subscripts)should be smaller than the letters. The numbers are not coefficients. Remember: A compound is two or more elements. CO is correct. If you chose N2, nitrogen is just one type of an element. The subscript(number 2) tells there are two of the same type of element, nitrogen. It does have two different elements.
